M3S3 – Mobile Monitoring MultiSensor Surveillance System

Shyam’s Unattended Ground Sensor system is a remote surveillance system providing tactical information during long or short duration military, counter-insurgency and intelligence gathering operations. These fully autonomous surveillance sensors are comprised of day and night vision, infra-red, and seismic, magnetic, and acoustic sensors; RF and wire line communication; and a multi-mode remote communications gateway. The remote gateway provides a secure two-way, beyond line-of-sight, communication channel in mission critical situations.

Shyam’s unattended ground sensors are compact, low cost, low power, and robust, and are expected to last in the field for extended periods of time after deployment. They are capable of transmitting target information back to a remote operator. These devices can be used to perform various mission tasks including perimeter defense, border patrol and surveillance, target acquisition, and situation awareness. In order to support the varied missions, Shyam’s unattended ground sensors provide robust and reliable communication links for timely message transmissions back to a command and control (C2) center.

The robust and scalable software interface, ReDIX, is built to provide a ubiquitous and holistic COP and enables UGS to be adaptable to various geographies, terrains, weather, and mission situations. REDIX (REmote Data Interface eXtension) is the presentation and processing layer of the system that enables the field unit and command center to aggregate and analyze critical data in realtime over field computers and handhelds.

ReDIX Presentation Layer

Vehicle Detection through Sensor Units

REDIX: Application Software

Visual imagery is an important capability required for effective Identification of remote activities in tactical battlefields as well as in dense urban environments. The robust and scalable software interface, ReDIX, is built to provide a ubiquitous and holistic COP and enables UGS to be adaptable to various geographies, terrains, weather, and

mission situations. REDIX (REmote Data Interface eXtension) is the presentation and processing layer of the system that enables the field unit and command center to aggregate and analyze critical data in realtime over field computers and handhelds.

To identify a threat, the field sensor unit sends the data to ReDIX where the SIMP (SIgnature Management Platform) refers to a signature database. The signature management system permits creation, administration, evaluation, optimization and distribution of signature data. When a vehicle passes the SNIPER probes, the field computer collects sensor data and compares it to stored signatures. The passing vehicle is identified as the same type as the vehicle of the most similar signature. If no signature is similar enough, an unknown vehicle is reported. Data from passing vehicles can be saved and later used to create new signatures. Reports on passing objects, including vehicles and personnel, are recorded for future use by the ReDIX software.
